California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

Trusted Counsel’s 2019 White Paper


While your business might not be directly affected by the CCPA, it is important to recognize that businesses that embrace data privacy as part of their operations will without question be ahead of their competition. In the long-term, your customers will expect data privacy when doing business with you, so the time to pay attention is now, because your reputation is at stake. 

This white paper has been designed to give the business owner a business interpretation of the CCPA and the bottom line. Entity application, key terms to understand, and an overview of a CCPA readiness assessment program.

In addition, the white paper covers the following:

  • The law’s background in brief
  • The four main differences between the CCPA and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  • Our legal recommendations for best practices for your business

“If you are in the business of data collection – and nearly all businesses today are – or if your business involves California residents, you will most likely need to comply.”

— Michael Jones, Attorney, Trusted Counsel
